They are crucial in transitioning the game from defense to attack and vice versa, making them key to maintaining the balance of the team on the field.
A Central Midfielder (CM) has a multifaceted role in the team. They are responsible for facilitating the transition of the ball from defense to offense, controlling the overall flow of the game, and maintaining possession of the ball.
